The race is part of the 2019 Pace Yourself Lewis County Walk/Run Circuit. The previous runs included the January Snowball Walk Run, the second annual Ground Hog Jog; the Irish Spring Snake Chase at Ireland, and the 12th annul Weston 5K Walk Run. After the May 4th event there will be:

This circuit is a combination of prior existing races such as the Rush Run at Stonewall Resort, the Weston 5K and newly formed races. Kevin Stalnaker, Assistant CEO at SJMH stated “The Community has directed us in our Community Assessments over the years that the obesity epidemic is something critical to our area. As such, we want to encourage healthy lifestyles and continued physical activity opportunities are key in those efforts.” These races are for the competitive and noncompetitive individual. Walkers are always welcome and encouraged. Stalnaker continued ”I participate in many of these events myself and at just about every race, someone says, ‘this is my first 5K, but not my last.’”
